I’m Passports & Pyjamas, or you can just call me Nina. Before I continue, you’re probably wondering where the name Passports & Pyjamas comes from. Besides being a globetrotter, I am also the World’s Sleepiest Girl. I am the queen of sleep and casual apparel. Wishing for the day that wearing pyjamas in public is socially acceptable. You would think my love for sleep and travel cannot coincide, and yet it is this focus on my health that keeps me enjoying my vacations time and time again. And so, that is how Passports & Pyjamas was born. So let’s get down to how my love for travel started.
About four years ago I started travelling and ever since I started, I have not been able to stop. I have made it my mission to travel whenever I possible could. Whereas I once saw travel only as a vacation from my everyday life, it soon became much more than that. With each new adventure, I learned something new. I learned about myself, learned to appreciate what I had often taken for granted, learned about different cultures, visited places I never imagined I would visit, and more importantly met some great people along the way. Where once I was the girl who had to rehearse an answer to a question posed by my professors ten times in my head before answering, I soon became a confident individual capable of navigating foreign countries on my own which has allowed me to share my experiences today.
So, you must be wondering what do I hope to achieve from this blog? First and foremost, my goal is to inspire. The world is such a vast place and there is so much to see and so much to learn. In my posts you will find not only suggestions, but personal memories which shaped my experience of the countries I visited. In reading my blog, you will see both the joys and frustrations I experienced throughout my travels and that even when things do not go as planned, it is how you deal with these obstacles that will determine how your trip goes. I want you to do more than cross countries off a bucket list, I want you to experience them and learn about them. And so, my advice to you is to learn to be comfortable with being uncomfortable. We cannot always change our circumstances but we can change the way we deal with them.
P.S If you find that you have questions you’d like to ask about a certain country or topic after reading my blog, feel free to contact me and I will try to get back to you as soon as possible. Let us experience this beautiful world together. Happy travels!
